From Pastor Steve: Jesus was about to feed the five thousand in John 6.  We read, “Jesus lifted up His eyes and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, ‘Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?’  But He said this to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do.” It is natural for us to ask God questions: In times of uncertainty In times when we do not understand what is happening In times when we cannot see our way ahead However, are we......

As We Wait…Heart-to-Heart The Bible was authored so supernaturally and strategically that at any season of life … it can be applied to the day in which we are living. The following scriptures were studied in light of our time of self-quarantining. Joshua 4:23-24 “For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan just what He had done to the Red Sea when He dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that......

Here is a summary from yesterday’s message that will assist us in navigating through our worldwide crisis.  Remember:  a crisis is an opportunity for making profound decisions. Profound decisions begin with hearing from God.  His presence is always available to us.  Are you making yourself available to Him?  To others in need?  (NOTE: Roz and I are available by phone, text, email, and, in person for pastoral emergencies.  Never hesitate to contact us.) Acknowledge your real needs.  All of us need to encounter Christ to discover what our real needs are.  So......

    For any of you that missed yesterday’s service, please consider watching the message from John 4.  Because I specifically mentioned “K I M B E R”, whom we support and was blocked from entering India this past week, the message can only be accessed on our website, rather than through You Tube.  We do not want to create any further difficulty for her as India has tightened down on its restrictions.  God has a plan for her and we know He will redirect her to the right place.  Please pray for......

    John 3:16 is a simple yet profound verse, which summarizes the whole of the Gospel.  In addition, it is noteworthy because these are the words of Jesus.  This verse can be effectively used in sharing the gospel as well as in giving your own personal testimony. Here is a summary of yesterday’s message in a way that can help you communicate its truth. There are four points to remember. The origin of our faith and salvation is … that the Almighty Eternal God loves us. (He is committed to our highest......

    Next Sunday we will be challenged as we continue our Study in John 3.  See if you can find the challenges in the rest of this chapter! In four different verses we are confronted with the importance of  “believing in Jesus.”  Our initial salvation begins with belief.  Then, ever growing in relationship with Jesus enlarges our faith in practical ways. The Holy Spirit is our ever-present help reminding us in the every-day-ness of life … that we are in the center of Christ Jesus and He is in the center......

   In John 2, Jesus exhibited His Passion for His Father’s house and His Father’s presence by overturning the tables of those extorting worshipers in the temple. That’s what He does.  He overturns everything in the believer’s life that hinders growth and transformation.  Our traditions, our attitudes, our selfish behavior and our character … at some point … will collide with His righteousness.  That is our opportunity for transformation.  Hebrews 12:27 indicates, “the removal of what can be shaken … so that what cannot be shaken may remain.” With His passion in......
